My name is Mary Tatem. I’m glad you’ve come to visit.

I’m an author and a quilter with a deep appreciation for the threads of hope God weaves into each of our lives.

My love affair with books and the written word began when I was in second grade. My fondest memories are of times curled up under my grandmother’s hand-made quilt, scribbling tales of giants, adventures and imaginary worlds.

Today, as a mother of four and grandmother of fifteen, I find real life is full of the most inspiring stories. In my most recent book, The Quilt of Life, I’ve shared stories about the God who is the Designer of our days, the One who quilts the fabric of our existence. In The Quilt of Joy and The Quilt of Faith you’ll find more tales to touch your heart, make you laugh, and draw you into the comfort of God’s presence.

At the core of every book I write is this belief: God is trustworthy with our past, trustworthy with our present, and trustworthy with our future. I love sharing that hope, whether through my speaking and video appearances, my newsletter, or during my booksignings.

In fact, I’d love to share that encouragement with you face-to-face. Wouldn’t it be fun to meet? Visit my News page to see if I have any book signings or talks scheduled in your area.

You can also come say hello on my Facebook page or send me a note through my Contact page, and tell me about your favorite quilt.

May God bless you this day and always,
